    Don't buy this nonsense. I can't tell you how many easy ways there are to make isk, but buying this book isn't going to tell you much. If you need money, run some missions. Play the market a bit...buy low/sell high. Manufacture some ammo and place it in large mission hubs. Get friendly with some research agents and do some datacore farming.

    At the end of the day, ask your corpmates. Don't let paypal take your money for some bullcrap like this. Maybe the guide has some useful tips, maybe not. If you get with some people that actually play the game, you won't need it.

    I actually read the entire page rather than performing a glance-and-flame.

     

    At the bottom you can click which format you want, I clicked .zip.  

     

    I just got the whole thing.

     

    For free...

     

    I believe the link said if you like it you can DONATE.

     

    Click it, read it, sure beats the political drama of some learning corps.  If you just glanced and assumed you had to pay for the informaton... well I guess you deserve your ignorance.

     Hilariously true.

    However in this case, the "ISK" stands for "Industrial Size Knowledgebase". It's a pity the Op didn't check the "useful links" sticky or he would have noticed that this was already posted there last year.

    The ISK is amazing.

     Whats evening more amazing is that books is in the useful links becuase IT IS FREE.

    You only donate money if you think its worth it.

    The book is basicly one stop reference for the game a very proper game manual.

    The ignorance on the board is by the people who cant read

    My apologies, I didn't look close enough at the sticky. The reason I posted, the 3.0 guide is suppose to be online some time today I believe.

    There are two versions of the ISK book, the free version and the one you pay for which has a bit more info.

    CCP and the author who made this book announced this late December 2010.

    I may have gotten this book wrong from the start. My impression is that it is a game guide, not a make a gazillion of ISK guide.

    Most often I'm intruiged by this kind of books, reading about details about the game and so on. Never bougth one myself, but a friend have a book with evemaps and some tips in it, and a book for WoW, found them interesting enough to sip through.

    I feel they really chosed a bad name for this. (Or perhaps it is a make a gazillion ISK book.)

    I'm so broke. I can't even pay attention.

    It's a game guide. Massive. Free.

    Download and enjoy. :)

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    I totally agree with you, what I saw first was this guys talking shit about the guide and I was like...this is free lol.

     

    Anyways it's a great guide for begginers and veterans too, since Eve is just...HUGE

    I have only browsed the 3.0 guide but it doesn't look like they updated their PI information on the new ECU's. Minor complaint considering everything else this guide includes.

    i agree with this guy, the page is very nicely done, and I'm downloading as we speak. They're not making you pay up front, but it even says "do you like it? donate!".

    I swear, people on this forums are a bunch of critical shit heads, including myself at some time.

    True. That is quite an expansive guide at that!

    @wiredknights

    I humbly accept your award. I appreciate all the accolades that come with the Golden Turd Award. It will be proudly displayed with my "Lo-Sec Griefer" and "Gatecamping for 16 hours straight" award. I would like to thank God, my agent and my corpmates for supporting me through all of these terrific awards.
